Does this photo from Traces of Texas bring back any memories for anyone on this forum?

It seems to me in the 50s there was an Ed Ormond's store in O.C. around Lida Howe Elem. or Greiner J.H. Jim

I went to Lida Hooe during the '70s. There was a store across Hampton (at Gladstone) that everyone referred to as "Ed's", although the name of the store was different by that time.

The correct spelling is Orman. In 1959 there was an Orman's Drive In Grocery at 602 S. Hampton in Oak Cliff. It was owned by Edward L. Orman who lived on Sunset Ave. in Oak Cliff.

There were some other business's in Dallas that were owned by people named Ormand. But not a grocery.

Ormans drive in was owned by Ed Orman a graduate of Sunset in 1928 whos daughter Jan went to Lida Hoe with me in 1954 i think. That was a long time ago but I can still remember her pretty blonde hair. My father also owned a grocery store in Oak Cliff and he and Ed were friends

Greattexas, what Oak Cliff grocery was your father's? Where was it located?

My Dads store was on the corner of Pierce and Brandon. The old building is still there. I sold it many years ago after my fathers death. I spent a lot of years growing up in that old store. Lots of good memories.
